Another was my first-ever trip to the Isle of Man for the TT this past June. I'd planned to go several times over the years, only to opt out as summer drew near for various reasons. Now that I've experienced the island's unique mix of history, hooliganism and hard-core racing, I'm sorry I waited this long. If you're a sportbike junkie, you simply must attend the TT at least once. The place is literally saturated with motorcycles, racing and bike history.
